Truck-car collision causes traffic delay on Highway 104

SHINE — A collision between a car and a semi truck on state Highway 104 sent two people to hospitals and partially closed the road for six hours.

Amy Fogelberg, 50, of Kingston, who was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, had been discharged as of Tuesday, according to spokesman Brian Donohue.

John M. White, 37, of Little Rock, Ark., who was driving the semi truck, was driven to St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale as a precaution, the State Patrol said. No information was available on his status.

Traffic was reduced to one lane of Highway 104 at milepost 8.87 near state Highway 19/Beaver Valley Road at 3:21 p.m. Monday after the 3:04 p.m. wreck at milepost 10. It was reopened by 8:24 that night.

The State Patrol said in a memo that White was traveling eastbound on 104 and Fogelberg was traveling westbound in the eastbound lane when White attempted to avoid Fogelberg by swerving and ended up hitting her Nissan.

The State Patrol said it issued a citation to Fogleberg for a lane violation.

Both vehicles suffered reportable damage, troopers said.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts and neither drugs nor alcohol were involved, the State Patrol said.
